Control freak GOP KS Gov. Brownback, after stage-managing Child Poverty 'town hall' meetings, goes after high school student for a tweet

Recently, Kansas Gov. Sam Brown back held several 'town hall' meetings across Kansas, presumably to address the issue of Child Poverty in the state, which is dead first in infant mortality. Participants in the forums had to submit, in advance, registration forms identifying their affiliations. If they were selected to attend, they were seated at a table with a "facilitator" who chose questions to be asked.
     Now comes news that Brownback's office was unhappy with a tweet sent by a high school student. Her principal was contacted; the student was told to write the Governor an apology. She hasn't decided whether she will. Now that the story has received nationwide attention, Kansas' Governor is refusing to comment.
